Word For The Day, December 11, 2012
In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".
nefarious [ni-fair-ee-uh s]
extremely wicked or villainous; iniquitous
[15951605; < Latin nefārius wicked, vile, equivalent to nefās offense against divine or moral law ( ne- negative prefix + fās law, right) + -ius -ious, with intervocalic s > r]
Time to go.
It is so disappointing that our elected republicans are so compliant with the democrats’ nefarious agenda.
Good morning, yourself. Did you see Texas Tech’s old coach is at the U of Cincinnati now?
Good morning. I hope that there is nothing nefarious going on at St. Mary’s hospital. My husband is undergoing gall bladder surgery there at this very moment. I also have a DIL undergoing induced labor in Aiken, SC for her 5th child and my 12th grandchild. I’m just sitting by the phone worrying about both patients. My thoughts are exclusively on hospitals.
Anybody who wishes to toss out a prayer, or three, for my loved ones this AM will be sincerely appreciated.
and what the heck were YOU up to last night? all likkered up and profane, cursing the dang Mayans like that. no possible good can come from cursing Mayans.
prayers for husband, daughterinlaw and new grandchild.
My wife had her gall bladder out. Should be no big deal.
Thanks. Much appreciated.
I don’t like Mayans or the Patriots.
i’ve always preferred the Olmecs, truth be told.
I had mine out too, but it was a big deal. (at least to me) He’s been in the hospital since early Sun. morning on an antibiotic drip. I had mine done as an outpatient but suffered complications later. He has complicating heart problems, so surgery is always worrisome.
I preferred the Incas
admit it, it was about the coca.
He was never our coach - we were just waiting for him to leave.
Now THIS is nefarious:
It’s all about the Titicaca.
OMG don’t tell chan and jules or they will insist on learning to drive too!! LOL!
oh that is so cute, thanks!!
Been there. Done that.
He was the one who quipped about the players’ fat little girlfriends.
You are both wearing the same nefarious expression.
i remembered. you look about 15 yo, ya goober.
Good news from Aiken Regional hospital. My wisp of a DIL just gave birth to a 9 lb 1 oz. baby boy named Daniel Michael. Curly headed, strawberry blonde. Since they already have 2 boys and 2 girls, it is nice that he now has a real name, rather than “Tie Breaker”! So that makes 4 granddaughters and 8 grandsons for us. And 4 males to carry on the last name. It’s a good thing that they induced her because she’s just a tiny little girl. I can’t believe she had a 9 lb baby!
Now, if can can just get some good news about my husband....
The fact that Obama’s gregarious
Obscures his agenda, nefarious
He’s happy and gay
While he takes rights away
A contradiction he must find hilarious
No, wrong coach
There’s a hospital in Pittsburgh on Aiken street, which I always found mildly amusing.
What do you do when atheists sue to make you remove your nativity?
The doctor just called. My husband did fine through the surgery. THe gall bladder was massively inflamed so it NEEDED to come out. Everything else looked fine. He’s gone to recovery and will be back in his room about 10:00 AM. So, I have to get my rear in gear and get over to the hospital. Thanks to all for helping me to suffer through this waiting.
is it Magee? bc that’s where i was born.
glad to hear good news all around. congrats on the new grandbaby.
the comment is so true. how sad must your life be if a nativity scene makes you apoplectic.
Not even really offended either. The atheists are from Wisconsin. They can’t even see the nativity from there.
Re: the moving nativity. Can’t you see this happening in a big city where they have parking regulations? Around the block every 3 hours, or so, to take a slightly different parking place! Sounds like a plan.
Which makes me grateful for Wisconsin. At least outside of Madison, we don’t have problems with Nativity scenes. I think I’ll visit all of them around here out of gratitude. And the menorahs too.
There is a large, electrified Menorah in the lobby of St. mary’s hospital right next to the statue of the nun who founded the place! Nobody objects. In Grafton, there is another huge lighted Menorah right next to the annual Nativity display in the center of town. A mile away, there is a LIVE Nativity nightly in fromt of a Lutheran church.
Despite my crickety knees, I shall struggle to get mine out of the basement and on display for the season. I don’t think I’ll put up a tree this year, but I’ll do the Nativity scene.
Who knows? Next year, Obama’s minions could ban all such displays! Fie on them! Now that would be NEFARIOUS!
I guess we need to pay more attention to the nefarious objectives the atheists are plotting. It appears that the “unchurched” have become one of the largest political influences in the US and have largely been responsible for the recent pathetic election results.
I hear some teachers in Michigan are having a sick out today in protest of RTW.
Live nativities are the normal “workaround” for nativity bans. Can’t ban people peacefully gathering.
I read about 2/3rds of his latest book. Suicide of A Superpower.
I can’t say he was wrong.
The Trib still runs his column. I may not agree with his protectionism or anti-Israelism, but he has valid points on many issues.
The name given to a large upright wheel at state and county fairs. It was nefarious when several riders at the top upchucked their cotton candy and corn dogs on the folks below at a state fair.
Now that was a nefarious wheel. Some remember it as the chunky wheel or the “I wish I hadn’t looked up” wheeel.
